TRIAC AT Receives "red dot design award"

Leister Technologies AG, a worldwide leader in plastic welding and hot air equipment, has received a “red dot: honourable mention” in the Industry and Craft category for its TRIAC AT, the newest addition to the Leister hot air tool family. The award pays tribute to challenging design concepts, as only products with detailed solutions are considered in the category.

The red dot product design competition, which originated in 1955, is one of the largest and most prestigious in the world. More than 14,000 participants from over 70 nations have taken part in the competition. The TRIAC AT, successor to the TRIAC PID, faced stiff competition with more than 1,800 companies and independent designers from 58 countries participating in the “red dot award: product design 2012” competition in March 2012. An international team of 30 experts surveyed, tested and evaluated each product live and on site. Criteria including innovative creativity, functionality, self-explanatory quality and ecological compatibility were assessed. Participants who stood out from the crowd were given the “red dot” seal of quality in their sector.

With growing competition in the international markets, it is more important than ever to prove true quality against pure price aggression. The “red dot” is a prestigious award and prominent seal of quality for aesthetic forms, dynamic trends and responsible yet thoughtful design.
